Villa Cafaggio Cortaccio CS 2004

Cabernet Sauvignon Cortaccio 2004This wine is like a ballerina; delicate and pretty but at the same time it possesses tremendous strength.  The nose is sleek and sophisticated, showing red fruits like rhubarb and raspberries and blue fruits like cassis and blackberries.  This is a layered wine which has creme de meure and toffee amongst the fruits.  Great bottle bouquet.

The palate is deep, rich and elegant.  The tannin and acidity are still in tact, showing that this wine can age yet.  The dark and ripe fruits are complex and accented by graphite and pencil lead minerality.  The palate is reminiscent of a good Bordeaux but has the ripeness of a warmer region and the funky herbs and spices of italy.

This cellar gem is one of the anchor tenants of our Big Cab wine club, and normally retails at $60.
